US 101: Siuslaw River Bridge (Florence) (MP 190.8 -191.2)


The Siuslaw River Bridge is located at the south end of Florence on U.S. 101. Repairs are being made to the bridge and its protective coating, seismic upgrades are being added, the railing upgraded, and pedestrian access improved.


THE EAST SIDE SIDEWALK OF THE SIUSLAW RIVER BRIDGE IS CLOSED TO PEDESTRIANS OVER THE 4th OF JULY HOLIDAY. It is an active construction workzone. The west side sidewalk of the bridge is open to the public.


No work is scheduled for the 4th of July Holiday. Travelers should expect up 20 minute delays. Workers are present most hours of the day with various shifts scheduled to not interfere with each other for the different parts of the work. The project is to be completed by the end of March 2019.
